As of July 1, 2020, University Health Services will no longer be able to provide allergy shots for students during the academic year beginning August 2020.
If you are currently receiving allergy shots from your personal doctor and wish to continue getting allergy shots while you are a student at UC Berkeley, please refer to the list of Allergists offices in the community near the UC Berkeley Campus. We can also assist in helping you find a local Allergist office for your on-going allergy shots.

If you need to see a local allergist for continuation of allergy shots because your allergist is located outside the Western United States, please call the Allergy/Travel Clinic to initiate a request for referral at (510) 642-1297. Please select an allergist that is a member of the Wellfleet Network to help assure that you receive the maximum insurance reimbursement, and therefore the lowest out of pocket expenses. Allergy services with an Wellfleet provider or at the UHS Allergy Clinic are reimbursed by the insurance plan at 90% (with 10% patient responsibility).
If you are not currently receiving allergy shots and need care for allergies, please make an appointment with your Primary Care provider.
Non-Berkeley SHIP Members
If you are covered by another insurance plan, you will need to contact your health plan to obtain names of local allergists who are participating providers with your insurance.
